Wonky Cherries – Lensbaby Blog Circle

January 31, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I must confess I’ve been feeling a little stuck in a rut with my photography recently. Every time I think of getting out the camera I hear a little voice saying ‘you’ve shot that before’ and I lose motivation. Which is nonsense really, every time we shoot something we do so through fresh eyes so yes, I may have shot something before, but that doesn’t mean I’ll shoot it exactly the same the next time round.

So to get myself out of the rut I decided that whatever I shot next it would be bright and airy rather than my usual darker tones. Feeling inspired I headed off for my food shop and discovered some rather lovely ‘wonky’ cherries – if you aren’t in the UK you may not understand the concept of wonky fruit and veg, basically they are the ones that aren’t a perfect shape and size. Supermarkets used to reject them since shoppers don’t like them (which I find hard to believe), now they package them as ‘wonky’ and sell them cheaper. I always buy wonky if possible and as an added bonus wonky cherries are often heart shaped!

Since I’ve missed the last few Lensbaby Blog Circle posts I decided I’d share a selection of my light and airy cherries for this month’s post….

As you can see the lightness didn’t last! I soon turned to darker images but really enjoyed shooting the brighter ones for a change. All of this month’s images were taken using the Lensbaby Velvet 56 except the last one where I used the old double glass optic with a heart shaped aperture disc.
